DISCOVER THE DRAGON ISLES
Discover the Dragon Isles and explore four new zones—the Waking Shores, roiling with elemental power; the vast expanse of the Ohn’ahran Plains; the frosty peaks of the Azure Span; and the majestic spires and temples of Thaldraszus—each themed around and revealing more about the ancient dragon aspects.
SOAR THROUGH THE AIR WITH DRAGONRIDING
Dragonriding is an all-new skill-based method of aerial movement that allows players to take to the skies on the back of their personal Dragon Isles Drake. Players will customize their drake as they progress through the expansion, collecting more appearance options and enabling them to fly farther and faster.

Fixed an issue that prevented Infernal Armor’s damage value from increasing with its second rank.
Fixed an issue where Orbital Strike and Goldrinn’s Fang would always critically strike when affected by Balance of All Things.
Quell can no longer be used while hexed.
Fixed an issue causing Lightning Shield, Water Shield, and Earth Shield to be removed when logging out, entering instances, or when dying.
Lightning Shield now lasts 60 minutes (was 30 minutes).
Fixed an issue where Fel Sunder could not be applied by multiple Demonology Warlocks.
Items and Rewards
Fixed an issue where Evokers were not eligible to roll on many legacy items.
Adjusted the sell value of some items to better reflect their values before the recent item level adjustments.
